A New York Police officer was caught on video Wednesday night telling a female officer that he was looking forward to using his nightstick later that evening.

“My little nightstick is going to get a workout tonight — hopefully,” he said. To make his point, the officer struck the ground with what appeared to be a baton.

That same night, local media filmed police using batons and pepper spray during the arrest of about 28 people involved in the Occupy Wall Street protests.
